Welcome to Holy Rosary Cathedral
The Cathedral is a house of prayer, praise and worship.
At its heart is the Blessed Sacrament which is the presence of God among us.
We warmly invite all who are seeking the love and peace of Jesus Christ in their lives to be part of our community.
Lent at the Cathedral
During this Holy Season we invite you to better prepare for the Mysteries of Our Redemption on Easter. On Wednesdays and Fridays after the 5:10 PM Mass we will have the Stations of the Cross. Also remember that this is a special season for the Sacrament of Reconciliation/Confession. We invite you to come to Confession at the regular times: 7:45 AM, 11:40 AM, and 4:40 PM Monday to Saturday. Click here to use our guide to prepare for confession.
Forgiven: The Gift of Reconciliation
If you want to deepen your understanding of the Sacrament of Confession and God’s forgiveness you are invited to join us on Mondays, March 5, 12, 19, 26 from 7 PM to 8:30 PM to view a video on this powerful sacrament and to participate in small groups to talk about the gift of reconciliation. This is a wonderful way to appreciate the gift of the mercy of God who never tires of forgiving us. For more information please click here.
We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You,
because by Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world!

Welcome to this cathedral, which is your cathedral, dedicated to Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, principal patron of the Archdiocese of Vancouver.
The church’s doors are open every day and throughout the day, and I invite you to make this sacred place your church in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
The cathedral offers something to every visitor, Catholic or non-Catholic. Explore its French gothic architecture, view its magnificent stained glass windows, and enjoy the exquisite organ music through which we praise God. This is where you can encounter our Lord in the sacraments, with Mass offered several times a day at convenient times, and confession available before and during weekday Masses.
In this busy city, I pray that our cathedral can be an oasis that sustains and restores you. Amid the hectic pace of life, may it serve as a sanctuary where you can drop in, pray, and meditate.
We are blessed to have this beautiful church, which for 115 years has stood as a symbol of our Catholic faith, a house of God in the heart of this beautiful and vibrant city. I invite you to come and make it your home as well.
